ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Christopher Kent has been singing professionally since the age of ten. As a kid, he toured the world with the American Boychoir; in high school he discovered pop music, taught himself to play guitar and began writing songs. After graduating from college he moved to New York City to write and perform full time.
At first, Christopher made his living singing in bars, learning hundreds of Top Forty hits and perfecting his vocal style. As his following and original repertoire grew, he appeared in clubs throughout the New York area and became a winner of the New York Songwriter's Competition. Christopher has performed both as a solo act and with a backup band, and has appeared numerous times on New York and Philadelphia radio.
While in New York, Christopher arranged and produced his first album, INTUITION. A few years later, recording artist Christine Lavin introduced him to Bill Kollar, who had produced her award-winning album, Good Thing He Can't Read My Mind. Mutual respect and admiration eventually led to Bill producing Chris' second album, DOORWAY.
During this time, Christopher created Songwriting Demystified, a unique, intensive songwriting course -- often called "The best in New York" -- which he taught for five years at New York's Discovery Center. He also pursued his second calling as an author, becoming a successful science writer, eventually publishing more than 150 articles while still recording, performing and teaching songwriting.
Now living in the Philadelphia area, Christopher continues to perform for appreciative audiences and give seminars on songwriting and creativity. Combining his two talents, he recently completed his first book and CD set, titled "Help and Hope." The book, "Staying Off the Wheel of Misfortune," is a 350-page self-help book designed to help people make the most of their lives; the CD, "Piece of the Puzzle" is a collection of 12 fully produced songs designed to inspired hope and courage. Both the book and CD are available on the Web. (For more info, visit christopherkent.com.)

Kent's powerful voice is beautifully supported by the lead guitar of Jay Azzolina (formerly of Spyro Gyra) and Kent's own masterful acoustic guitar.

Doorway is a special album.
Christopher Kent expresses my feelings in a way I can't. I get comfort from his songs. I get joy from them.
